This general was a warmonger as he was one of the supporters of the failed and erroneous theory that Iraq had weapons of mas destruction. Is responsible for millions of iraquí soldiers killed in rendition waving white flags hungry and thirsty in the Highway of death from Kuwait yo Iraq.
Very true ! the time of real judgement has reached; No one can escape from it😰

he will forever be remembered as the man who lied to the world about Iraq and this led to the death f 700 000 people
Before the multitudes of innocents, whose deaths he caused or hastened, may God be his judge.
The time of real judgement has now reached, no one can escape from it.

“If you have to be persuaded, reminded, pressured, lied to, incentivized, coerced, bullied, socially shamed, guilt-tripped, threatened, punished and criminalized .... If all of this is considered necessary to gain your compliance -- you can be absolutely certain that what is being promoted is not in your best interest.” - Ian Watson

Why is his death being linked to "COVID-19?" Even this "reporting" suggests he died from complications from cancer. Yet, he passed from "COVID-19?" I'm not understanding this.
RIP AND THANKYOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. But imagine the Fully Vaccinated Americans, that died from Covid-19 that they don't name!!

All I can remember of him is him sitting at the UN holding up a vial and telling (lying to) everyone that Iraq had WMD's.

Wow that is so sad R I P to him 😢
I remember his smile, his gentle character - at least from public appearances on tv - but also him dragging in countless american soldiers into a war based on lies which he himself later had deeply regretted. However, they got rid of evil Saddam someone who did also terrible harm to his own people - that shall also not be forgotton. Surprised to hear him dying of covid despite double vaccination. Condolences to his family.

A question is quietly raised among immunologists, and researchers that "was lymphocytosis causing the death of Genrral Powell?" A new class of covid drug is developed to boost the immune system in aging body by increasing the natural killer cells. It's said that Gen Powell was covid free after the med treatment, but a booster was made to help his immune body without understand the consequences. Cytokine storm was ruled out in his case by other immune scientists.

Colin Powell on his time in Vietnam: “We burned down the thatched huts, starting the blaze with Ronson and Zippo lighters…Ho Chi Minh had said the people were like the sea in which his guerrillas swam…We tried to solve the problem by making the whole sea uninhabitable.”
